Jon,
Do you think one is likely to get a 2013 335is at or near invoice?

Are you making him an offer? If he says yes, are you going to buy it from him?

All I'm saying is there is a better way to get your answer...

That's not a problem. People do it all of the time. I get an email, quote a price such as close to invoice or lower, and they take my number to their local dealer in writing, and get their local dealer to sell it to them for that (because I will). It's all part of the game these days. Anyway, that's not true for everyone. Luckily, there are members who do see the real value in buying from me...



All that aside, yes, I would sell one near invoice.

Jon, I've seen comments from several posters about buying from you and the board sponsors, including people who are nowhere near you. I was just wondering how they typically arrange that? I would love to use a CA like you for my next vehicle purchase but I don't think making the trip to CA from AR would be financially logical. Do you ship the cars to the customer?

I know all the paperwork can be done over the phone, by email, and by express mail, it's just the logistics of getting the actual car that I wonder about.

A CA in Irvine told me that my 2011 328i would qualify for the pull ahead program. He said they would pick up 3 payments.

Does this vary amongst dealerships? Seems like I get different answers from every dealership.

Sales Support is no longer strong on last year's model. No option credit. Base residual for 36 months is a weak 54%... :-/

Are these residuals for 15 or 12k miles per year?

Not here! In '08 I brought the quote I'd gotten from Adrian to the local dealership (sorry, Adrian, Atlanta's a long drive!) and they told me, "We can't come close to that. Take that offer."

Apparently 15k, from comparing other sources.

However, that would mean the Z4 is absurdly cheap and we should all be ordering one right now.

I don't understand why the money factors are now confidential (well I do, but the reason does not make sense). Don't we know every interest rate in the universe for loans of any kind? I think consumers should have this information, otherwise is fishy. Now the site http://www.ridewithg.com has this, but does not include the MF for M5's. Anyone has the money factors for M5's? Thank you.

Sorry, but I am forbidden from posting confidential information such as Lease Money Factors.

When selecting your dealer, kindly take into consideration my experience -- 4 decades in the automotive industry, at every level of dealership management from New Vehicle Salesperson to Director of Finance to General Sales Manager. When I first began assisting the burgeoning online community of BMW buyers (circa 1997), I was virtually the only BMW representative in the USA to do so, the original, the pioneer. This is just one of the reasons why Bimmerfest exists today. If you have ever derived benefit or pleasure from this website, I ask that you give me a shot at handling your next BMW acquisition. 2012 was a great year for BMW and for myself -- returning after a 7 year sabbatical. I hope to build on that momentum, and will be offering even more aggressive pricing for all California BMW buyers in 2013 (sorry, but my "Internet Special" program for Bimmerfest members is strictly limited to California/West Coast or adjoining states exclusively). My customers always comment that they can't believe how easy it is to do business this way. Thanks to resources like www.BMWConfig.com, all you have to do is calculate the Factory Wholesale (invoice) price, send me the spec's, and get an incredible quote. Honestly, you can't go wrong with any of our forum sponsors. One way to show your appreciation for Bimmerfest would be to order from the guy who started it all (me)...



Below are the residuals and option credits for January:

Check you the dealership you are giving your money too. They cannot adjust the markup like the MF, Acquisition Fee etc so the information they give you will be accurate.

Try contacting one of the board sponsors. I am working with Adrian in South Atlanta (I live in Philadelphia), and so far the experience has been awesome. He was recommended to me by the board owner, Jon, who also works for BMW and sells them, with a special for CA residents.

This is not intended to sound mean. Contact these people only if you intend to buy from them. I know they are more than happy to help. However, if you intend to buy from someone else make them do the work.

You are missing the context. He is referring to residuals.

"they cannot adjust the markup [of residuals] like the MF etc"

"residual" is missing from the sentence because it was already the subject.
